Pros

  • Can negate any card effect.
  • Destroys the negated card.

Cons

  • Needs to discard same type of card to negate an effect, making this somewhat situational.

Tips

Van'Dalgyon the Dark Dragon Lord

When you negate an effect with Ultimate Providence, you can Van'Dalgyon the Dark Dragon Lord special summoned special summoned from your hand and depending on what you negate he activates a different effect. And since Ultimate Providence can negate any card effect, you can choose what to negate and have Van'Dalgyon the Dark Dragon Lord gain a specific effect.

Bountiful Artemis

Having Bountiful Artemis Face-up when you use counter traps allows you to draw a card. This will help you recover from the cost of using Ultimate Providence.

A Cat of Ill Omens

You can use A Cat of Ill Omen to search this card and put it at the top of your deck.

Because this card is Counter Trap. Forbidden Lance is Quick Spell, which is slower. You can only chain it by another Counter Trap.

how can neos fusion effect to prevent destruction react to ultimate providence?

Destruction substitution effects don't activate/start chains, you just choose to apply them instead of destroying the card

Neos fusion secondary effect skip activation phase and straight went into effect. Thats why any activation negation doesn't affect it. Card like Necrovalley or Anubis however disable the effect since it was negating the effect not preventing the activation.

Would this stop quintet magicians destruction effect?

Technically yes, but quintet can't be destroyed by effects so it will stay on field

I was playing against a deck that had this card. I had Koa'ki Meiru Sandman on the field, but I was not given an option to negate Ultimate Providence effect. Any reason why that would be?

What the hell are you talking about?
How does it miss timing when it couldn't even be activated?
I guess u don't understand the concept of spell speed as well.

Well you can't negate a card unless it finishes its cost, then it has another effect. So its two effects but one at a time.

it's not even about missing the timing, also cost is not an effect

it's simply because monster effect has a lower Speed Spell than counter trap

You cannot negate counter traps except with another counter trap.

When this card says negate the activation of a monster effect, does it ONLY negate the effect that the monster activated ?

For a monster that has 2 effects.
This would mean it's passive effect such as "Cannot be destroyed by card effects" won't be negated.

So Ultimate Providence will stop that kind of monster from activating its effect once but won't be able to destroy it. So those kind of monsters can just use their negated effect a second time.
